'Fever To Tell' is set for an April release...

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have finally finished their hugely anticipated debut album ‘FEVER TO TELL’.

The New York trio have just visited England to finish the mixing on ‘Fever To Tell’ with Alan Moulder, who has previously worked with JJ72, Ash, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins and U2.

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM, guitarist Nick Zinner said that Moulder’s experience proved hugely valuable for the group.


“He is amazing!” Nick enthused. “He has golden ears! It’s all finished. We started the mixes from scratch again and did it in a really short period of time.”

The album has been put back to April, with a currently undecided single to precede it to coincide with their British shows at: Glasgow QMU (February 24)

Sheffield Leadmill (25)

Manchester Academy 2 (26)

Nottingham Rock City (27)

Bristol Anson Rooms (March 1)


Oxford Zodiac (2)

London Astoria (4)

Nick told NME.COM that ‘Fever To Tell’ might not be what fans are expecting, having heard their two singles to date.

He continued: “Some of it is quite dark and quite noisy. It’s a little bit like ‘Machine’, but not really. It’s rock, so it’s very loud and aggressive. But then there’s also that tender, sensitive side to us. It still sounds like us, it’s not that it’s like Girls Aloud or anything!”

Tickets for the tour are available now and cost £8 except London, which is £11.

Support throughout the tour will be [a][/a], The Kills, Har Mar Superstar, The Stills and Cranebuilders. For tickets [url=]click here or call the NME Ticketline on 0870 1 663 663.
